For those of you who may not be aware, my name is Christian Ward, the self entitled T-Comm Lion. If one were being honest, the name of the blog came from two principal interests of mine. First is Telecommunications (T-Comm), my major. The second part, the ‘lion’ part, comes not from any strange fascination with the specific animal, but rather from a game called Legend of the Five Rings, a game loosely based on Sengoku Era Japan. The Lion Clan are supposed to be the right hand of the Empire, the defenders of its honor and name. In keeping with this, I chose the Lion since I’d like to one day see myself as a protector and defender of the business I’ll be working for.
As part of this blog, I am going to be paying attention to three or four industry leaders and later writing about them. The thing is, I am not going to be looking at Telecommunications leaders. While it is my major and a great interest of mine, the pure fact is that many of the industry leaders in directing, where I aim to put myself some day, do not keep personal blogs, or at least not ones that they keep regularly. Instead, I will be focusing on Entrepreneurs, people who created their own businesses and became wildly successful. Beyond the fact that there are a plethora of blogs written by successful entrepreneurs, making it a natural subject to choose, I myself seek to go into business for myself one day, and the insights that could be found within this information will do great things in my continued success in the future. Without further ado, the three entrepreneurs I am choosing are as follows:
1) Larry Page and Sergey Brin – co-founders of google.com (http://googleblog.blogspot.com)
2)Bill Gates – Founder of Microsoft (http://www.thegatesnotes.com/)
3)Allen Frechter – Founder of Plexi-Craft (http://www.plexi-craft.com/blog/)
Through following the writings of these three people, I hope to gleam some insights into the world of business, and ensure that I am better prepared for the next stages of my life. For now, though, I’m signing off.
